When you try to create a new Vendor in Airbase to process Bill Payments, you can search for the Vendor by their name, legal name, or website. Airbase will search for the Vendor in the Airbase Vendor network based on the details you entered and list all the relevant Vendors for you. This makes it easier to select the right Vendor before processing payments.
Here’s an example of how the Enhanced Vendor Search function works while adding a new Vendor on the Bill Payments > Inbox page.
Airbase will list the Vendors name and short description, including their website. This will avoid confusion when there are multiple Vendors with the same name.
To learn more about the Vendor, hover over the Learn more option next to the Vendor’s name for a short description of the Vendor. To visit the Vendor's website, click on the Learn more option.
Once you select the Vendor from the list, Airbase will auto-populate their name and website. The Vendor’s payment details need to be entered manually.
Enhanced Vendor Search feature is available across all Bill Payment functions that allow you to add a new Vendor.
Users need Manage Vendors User Permission to create a new Vendor in Airbase.
